SAN FRANCISCO - The Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education this week will consider asking voters to consider authorizing a larger-than-expected $7 billion general obligation bond measure in November.

The LAUSD, the nation's second-largest school district, estimates that it has a $60 billion backlog of capital needs. District officials have been discussing a $3.2 billion ballot measure for months, but the agenda for Thursday's board meeting includes a resolution asking voters to approve more than twice that amount.
